Can my former employer enforce the non compete agreement?

i had a non compete with a former employer. I'm a Massage therapist so it states I'm not allowed to have any services with anyone i catered to at their location for ten mile radius and for one year. My practice is about two miles away. And the other spa is about 6. My clients want to see me but I was told if I see them I will be in breach of the agreement. Can they enforce the agreement?

Generally yes, as you describe that you will be working within the restricted area, during the restricted time, doing the same or very similar work to what you were doing for your old employer. There are other issues that should be considered, such as whether the noncompete provision was supported by adequate consideration, whether the employer breached any contract or agreements with you, whether some of the customers were your customers prior to working for the former employer, whether that geographic distance is reasonable, whether that length of time is reasonable, etc. I urge you to take your noncompete, and any other agreements you had with your former employer, to an experienced employment law attorney for a full review and advice.
